Christmas Bed Donation

Just in time for Christmas, LKHZ utilized the money from December successes to donate a bed to sponsored student Julio’s family. Right now, the family of 5 shares 2 beds, so this extra bed will be a huge relief for the family. For $170, Julio will receive a bed and a mattress, made by the organization Mayan Families’ workshop (that also commissions other young Mayan students in the trade craft of furniture making, supplying them with a skill and income).

If you would like to give back this holiday season, consider donating a set of sheets for $25 to Julio’s family as well. Comment below or email to learn how to donate.

Happy Holidays!

LKHZ at the Bryn Mawr College Staff Association Holiday Fair

If you’re in the area, come out and see LKHZ at the Bryn Mawr College staff association craft fair from 10-2 on December 3rd in Thomas Great Hall. As always, all money made will be donated to LKHZ causes, specifically sponsored students needs and a scholarship fund for next year.

This is a really exciting opportunity to raise money for causes and get the word out about the organization and mission amongst staff and alumnae from Bryn Mawr College. This networking will hopefully make fruitful connections for future partnerships.

For sale will be Key Of Knowledge necklaces, tab bracelets, shell rings, crayons, and other jewelry.

Hope to see you there!

Little Known Help Zone knew the need to send more was there and went out and purchased items for the three girls. These are on their way to Honduras, with shipping generously provided by DIP shipping. Funding for these backpacks was earned through fundraising efforts from earlier this year.
